Vector Analysis

Vector analysis is a mathematical subject more than it is a

an engineering problem.
Vector algebra is the algebra of vectors: a set of
mathematical rules that allows meaningful and useful
operations in the study of electromagnetics

Vector Analysis
Scalars and Vectors

The term scalar refers to a quantity whose value may be

represented by a single (positive or negative) real number
Examples of scalar quantities : mass, density, pressure,
volume, volume resistivity, and voltage
A vector quantity has both a magnitude and a direction
A field can be a scalar or a vector

Vector Analysis

Vectors Notation

Vectors are denoted by a boldface letter such as

A , B , a , g.

Another method is to use a bar or arrow over the letter to

indicate a vector, such as

A, b

A vector is written as a sum of components. The components

are represented based on the assumed coordinate system1

The are three common coordinate systems: The Cartesian coordinate, the
cylindrical coordinate and the spherical coordinates.

Vectors Notation in Graphics

A vector may be represented as a directed line segment or

The length of the arrow represents the magnitude of the
vector and the arrow head indicates its direction.

Other Vectors Notation

A vector field is a vector function of a position vector. For

example written as
Here G is the vector field and r is the position vector
A scalar field is a scalar function of a position vector. For
T (r)
Note that here T is a scalar.

Vector Analysis

Other Vectors Notation

A vector from the origin to a point is written using a

lowercase boldface letter (with or without an overline). For
example, the vector from the origin to the point P = (1, 2, 3)

rP = a x + 2a y + 3a z

The vector connecting two points is written with a subscript

stating both points. For example the vector connecting the
points P(1, 2, 3) to Q(2, 2, 1) is written as

RPQ =rQ rP
=(2 1)a x + (2 2)a y + (1 3)a z
=a x 4a y 2a z

The Rectangular Coordinate System

In the rectangular coordinate system we set up three

coordinate axes mutually at right angles to each other and call
them the x, y , and z axes.

Vector Components and Unit Vectors

Each vector is written in terms of its components

For example, let us consider the following vector in the 3D

Cartesian coordinates

A = Ax a x + Ay a y + Az a z

In this case
Ax is the x component
Ay is the y component
Az is the z component
a x is the unit vector in the direction of x
a y is the unit vector in the direction of y
a z is the unit vector in the direction of z

Magnitude of a Vector

The magnitude of the vector A is ,

|A| = A2x + A2y + A2z

16 / 29
Unit Vector

If we divide a vector B by its magnitude |B|, we obtain a vector b

of unit length pointing in the direction of B. This is the unit vector
in the direction of B.
ab =

Unit Vector

Example: Given the vector G = 2a x 2a y a z find the unit

vector in the direction of G.

aG = = = a x a y a z
|G| 22 + (2)2 + (1)2 3 3 3

Vector Algebra

Vector algebra is a set of rules that apply to vector quantities.

Four basic operations are required for vectors:
1 Vector Addition and Subtraction
2 Vector Scaling A vector can be scaled by multiplying its
magnitude by a scalar value. Scaling is defined as changing the
magnitude of the vector
3 Product
The Dot Product (Scalar Product)
The Cross Product (Vector Product)

Vector Algebra
Vector Addition and Subtraction

The sum of A = Ax a x + Ay a y + Az a z and

B = Bx a x + By a y + Bz a z is

A + B = (Ax + Bx )a x + (Ay + By )a y + (Az + Bz )a z

To subtract B from A, we add the negative of B to A

The sum A + B is the arrow from the tail of A to the head of

Vector Addition and Subtraction

Vector addition is commutative


Vector addition is associative

(A + B) + C = A + (B + C)

Vector Scaling

Vector Scaling

If a vector is multiplied by a scalar, s, its magnitude is

multiplied by the magnitude of s.
The direction of the vector is unchanged if the scalar is
positive and real.

Properties of Vector Scaling

Scalar multiplication is distributive
s (A + B) = sA + sB
Scalar division by s corresponds to multiplication by the
inverse of s ( )

1 RMN = 4a x 5a y a z
2 RMP = a x 5a y 5a z .
RMN + RMP = 3a x 10a y 6a z
3 2rp 3rN = 2 (2a x 3a y 4a z ) 3 (3a x 3a y )

The dot product of two vectors is a scalar and it is defined as

A B = |A| |B| cos AB

where AB is the angle between A and B

Cross Product: Vector Interpretation

The cross product can be written as

A B = an |A||B| sin AB , (0 AB )

The elements of the cross product can be interpreted as follows

the parallelogram formed by A and B
The direction of A B is the direction of the unit vector an
